BeFastTV talked with Tomer Cohen, the co-founder of AROS. Tomer had his first taste of Augmented Reality (AR) from the cockpit of an F-16 when he was 18 years old. Tomer met his co-founder, Alon Getz, when they were in the same squad working for the Israel military. Alon Getz is the former head of the AR project of the Israel military and has over 20 years experience in engineering, inertial sensors, navigation, hybrid/sensor fusion, and computer-vision.
The two individuals came together and are committed to bringing cutting edge augmented reality to all outdoor industrial vectors and revolutionize the way people interact outdoor activities in their day-to-day lives. AROS has a pending patent for its unique user interface, which is highly adaptable, intuitive and configurable for users.
Looking forward, AROS is actively looking for manufacturing partnership to further expand their scope of services. AROS is committed to extending their solution to a wider industry, such as logistic, construction, military use, mining and more.
Third place – Loginno
Loginno, an Israel-based startup that develops cost effective and real-time solution for shipping containers won the third place of G-Startup Tel Aviv 2017 for their innovative breakthrough in the logistic industry.
Having worked in the container industry for many years, Shachar was in charge of special equipment and observed a lot of problems with the traditional containers. Shachar told BeFastTV that he has always wanted to develop a new kind of container and make them “smarter”. After several unsuccessful attempts to shake things up in his old company, Shachar decided to start his venture and put his idea into execution.
Shachar, founder of Loginno considers himself as a lucky entrepreneur. “I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. It wasn’t easy. I was like the camel in a desert with very few drops of water, but somehow you have to make it to the dessert. The journey requires a very stable and supportive environment and you gave to be very patient and attentive. I am lucky that my family gave me a lot of support. Although the process was really intense but it is also very gratifying,” he says.
The Israel-headquartered company has already off to a good start with a strategic partnership with one of the leading logistic unicorns. Looking ahead, Loginno aims to be the leading force in shipping IoT industry and gradually spread their footprints into the Asian market.
